News: Open Air Shakespeare at BH Festival

Posted on 1st March 2018

Presenting an exciting opportunity to support one of the highlights of this year’s Burgess Hill Summer Festival – an open air performance of Shakespeare’s spellbinding masterpiece The Tempest, by acclaimed professional theatre company, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men.

 

Burgess Hill Summer Festival takes place from Saturday 2 – Sunday 10 June 2018.  The performance of The Tempest is the closing event of the 9-day Festival programme and will be held in the glorious grounds of Burgess Hill Girls school in Keymer Road. The gates will open early for the audience to bring picnics.  There’s no lovelier way to spend a summer’s evening!

 

The Festival is the town’s annual showcase for its many community groups and activities. Last year, 62 events took place during the 9-day Festival, with 35 local groups, individuals and businesses organising events. As well as showcasing what the town has to offer, the Festival also tries to provide opportunities for experiencing creative and performing arts, on a very slender budget. We would be very grateful for your support to bring this wonderful event to Burgess Hill.

Best wishes

The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

Mike Oliver, Owner

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
